The NT Government is working on a data centre refresh program that is moving to a dual-site model for managing essential government data.

Establishing a new purpose designed government data centre is the first of three projects in the program. Following design and fit-out of the Government Data Centre (GDC), the next project is to commission the new facility.

A dual-site model substantially reduces risk to continuity of government services, digital systems and the enterprise ICT network by increasing capacity and resilience to manage a disaster event.

This initiative builds government's core digital foundations through ICT infrastructure, network and data storage in a modern, industry standard facility that will meet future needs.
